The Aviation Foundation of America will honor one of the greatest aviators in the history of aviation on April 2nd of this year when they unveil a life-size statue of beloved aviation legend R.A. “Bob” Hoover at a reception at the National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.
The Bob Hoover statue is a life-size bronze statue of Hoover waving his iconic straw hat as he used to do following so many air show performances. The sculpture is the work of sculptor Benjamin Victor. As all segments of aviation in the United States work towards the mandate to have ADS-B Out equipment installed by the year 2020 deadline, the U.S. Air Force has announced it will not meet that deadline for all its aircraft. Boeing is reportedly looking into the feasibility of creating a new airplane class that would fall between its current single aisle and wide body aircraft, but Randy Tinseth, Boeing's corporate VP for marketing, said that the idea faces several hurdles. Tinseth floated the idea at the ‘International Society of Transport Trading Americas’ air financing conference. He said that the "mid-market" aircraft would fill a demand for airplanes that would seat fewer passengers but be capable of traveling long distances.
